WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — The Purdue men’s basketball team returns to Mackey Arena to continue its early-season gauntlet by hosting No. 17-ranked Louisville in the Big Ten / ACC Challenge on Tuesday. Tip is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET, on ESPN.

The Boilermakers are coming off a disappointing showing in the Battle 4 Atlantis, but a win over Louisville would go a long way to easing some of that pain.

The game will be a rematch of last year’s challenge, won by Louisville 71-64.
